Coffee addicts may long for a java IV-drip but there is now proof that this is a very bad idea.
"I saw my mother was agitated, she opened her mouth, and this youngster put coffee with milk into the veins of my mother. Half a glass," the victim's daughter Loreni Ribeiro described.
The student nurse, Rejane Moreira Telles, had just three days of work experience before administering the drip, a procedure she was not trained to do. She appeared on Brazil's TV Globo's Fantastico saying, "Anyone can get confused." Perhaps she needed more coffee.
